    About New 50 $1000 1907 Gold Certificate - Second Highest Graded at PCGS

    Fr. 1219e $1,000 1907 Gold Certificate PCGS About New 50.
    "'This note has never before appeared at public auction with its only prior public notice appearing when Larry Hanks advertised in the Trade Papers in 2003. It is a beautiful example of the type with broad margins, ideal centering of both sides, and perfect colors. The note could very easily be mistaken for a fully Uncirculated example. Even the bold back color remains fully bright on this note. For some reason, the orange backs of these higher denomination Gold Certificates seem to have lost their color far more rapidly than their lower denomination counterparts--not so with this beautifully bright example.' That was our 2005 description when we sold this note as a raw About New. Now as a PCGS 50, it is the second highest example of this number they have graded. Way back in 2005, this beauty brought a touch over $63,000. Tonight it is very likely heading to a six figure realization." That was our entire description when we last sold this beauty in January 2013. It remains the second highest graded at PCGS. It fell short of the six figures we projected, but surpassed its prior $63,000. We again feel this is a six figure note, and on this much stronger market for great type notes, it should easily get there.
